The Best is Yet To Come
What does the Bible say about the future of the
Wars, rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, and other disasters are becoming

the end times? The Bible has the true answers to these questions which Charles Ryrie
explains in clear and easy-to-understand language. Demystified are prophesies
relating to Russia, China, Europe, the Arab nations and Israel. Also what is known
about the end-times role of the church in world affairs. All of the chapters are

through God's sovereign timing.

raised topics of concern among Christians today. These highly credible responses are

volume and know what to say the next time you're on the spot.
The Final Countdown
Gain a firm biblical basis for the prophesy you
choose to believe
Bible prophecy has become big business featuring many so-called prophets claiming
to speak the truth for God. Charles Ryrie debunks those who abuse and pervert the
truth as "prophesy quacks" and sets out to help his
readers become careful students of prophesy. This authoritative content will help
extend your knowledge of those who have genuinely spoken for God and how to interpret
and apply prophesy to today's context as it stands in
God's view of eternity.
The Grace of God
A comprehensive study of God's
favor as expressed through Christ -- His Word of Grace
The Grace of God traces the Hebrew and Greek words for "grace" throughout the Old
and New Testament life and times. The place of faith is demonstrated in the Old
Testament along with the relationship of election and grace in the Mosaic law. The
New Testament section delineates the particular functions of grace through various
passages with emphasis on the Pauline concept of law and grace. The book concludes
with an excellent pair of appendices: "What is Legalism?" and "What is Liberty?"
Making the Most of Life
Life is precious, but certainly not easy for a young person to live the Christian
life today. The same was true in New Testament times. The government was corrupt, sin
was rampant and open, homes were not always godly, and many believers were

the norm, God still expects believers, young and old, to live godly lives. Learn how

often hard-to-understand tenets? In this very popular and critically important title,
Dr. Ryrie expertly frames the theological question and links it to the person in the
While giving Karl Barth credit for his emphasis on supernaturalism in opposition
to the humanistic theology of his time, the author offers a strong critique of
Barthian theology concept that the Bible merely attests to revelation
-- it is not revelation in itself. Dr. Ryrie correctly identifies
and confronts the errors in Barthianism and provides a strong, biblically-based
defense of evangelical theology and its importance in correctly interpreting the
The Role of Women in the Church
A modern viewpoint of women's spiritual
At the time of this book's release, it dealt with a subject that
had previously received little treatment. It is still a useful tool for providing
biblical direction to the church for the role of women which is in keeping with the
guidelines laid down by the Bible.
The Role of Women in the Church is
an inquiry into the practices of the past through ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish
cultures and is followed by a three-part discussion dealing with the effect of Jesus
on the status of women during the apostolic age, and beyond. Here is a timely title
that deals with the role of women through the Bible, founding of the church, and now
in contemporary life. Study questions at the end of each chapter help to
reinforce and focus the content into memorable information points.
Ryrie's Concise Guide to the Bible
Clear answers in a concise format
What makes the Bible the same authority for millions of Christians in totally
different cultures? How did Christ use the Bible of his day? What about problems in
the Old and New Testament? How can we most profitably study the Bible?
The answers to these questions, plus an unusual question-and-answer approach to
each book of the Bible, makes this book a unique contribution to an understanding of
Recognized for his ability to present significant ideas simply and succinctly,
Charles Ryrie has combined many years of teaching the Bible and theology as well as a
special interest in collecting unique Bible editions, to produce an invaluable
introductory guide to the Bible.
Transformed by his Glory
Your concept of God can become worn thin by years of familiarity, hard circumstances,
or a society that frowns on his uniqueness or even his existence. But when you lay
aside these threadbare images and return your gaze to God's awesome character, you
come away not only refreshed but inwardly different.
In this book Charles Ryrie turns your thoughts specifically to the glory of God. It's
a subject little written about and perhaps even less understood, but in his gifted
way of making dry theology everyday practical, Dr. Ryrie clearly explains what it is,
how it changed the men and women of Scripture, and how it can change you.
If your Christianity hasn't been making a difference lately, perhaps your idea of
God has lost its glory. Allow this book to help you reflect anew on his glory now and
to encourage you that one day you will see that glory face-to-face. You won't be the
What You Should Know about Inerrancy
Inerrancy's relevant necessity
for faith in God's Word
In this title, Dr. Charles Ryrie builds a case for belief in the Bible as the
inerrant word of God must occupy a place of primary importance in one's doctrinal
system. Even if one part of the Bible is thought to be false, how can any of it be
trusted as true?
Through convincing facts and explanations, Dr. Ryrie proves to readers that God
did not permit man to divert, misdirect, or erroneously record his message. The
Bible, the entire Bible, is inerrant and can be trusted to be totally reliable.
The Christian and Social
The role of compassionate service in sharing the
good news of Jesus
How are we to be salt and light in today's world? Dr. Ryrie gives insight into how
followers of Christ can imitate his personal priorities while serving others and
maintaining a responsibly biblical witness in matters of civil justice and social
Dr. Ryrie addresses pertinent questions on the Church's social responsibility in
- Does Christ not command social service to all men?
- Should we insist on justice because God is just, or deny our rights because God
- How will the believer know which is the proper course of social action at a
- Should wealthy persons disperse their possessions?
This title is a must for those who desire to determine the extent of their
involvement in today's world. It is informative and challenging.
What You Should Know About the Rapture
Make an informed decision about your belief concerning the end times
There's no doubt of the importance of understanding the portions of Scripture describing eternity-future. Where we are going is straight-forward, but often complicated on how we'll get there. Dr. Ryrie systematically takes on the rapture question and related topics of eschatology with scholarly precision, but in such a way as to be understandably-clear on the key points of each position and its impact on daily life between now and Christ's return.
What You Should Know About the Rapture will help you to make the most of your talents and treasure to serve in the advancement of His completed kingdom.

First & Second
A powerful verse-by-verse commentary on the Apostle Paul's letters to the
Thessalonians From the author's
"Every once in a while a new book will appear on the market with a title something
like this: How I've Changed My Mind
various chapters then detail the ways in which the author's thinking has changed
(often about important doctrines) throughout his lifetime. The apostle Paul would
never have written such a book. Here's why we can be certain of that. Although among
the earliest of Paul's letters (only Galatians is earlier), 1 and 2 Thessalonians in
no way exhibit undeveloped or immature thinking. Paul had been a Christian for
seventeen or eighteen years by the time he wrote 1 Thessalonians. His theology was
fully developed in his mind and tested in his ministry before he wrote these letters
to the Thessalonians. These epistles are like finely cut gems. They reflect the
depths of theological thought, especially in the area of future things. They mirror
the pattern of teaching that the apostle used with new Gentile converts.

Balancing the Christian Life
Secrets to blending your relationship with God into all areas of your life Genuine
and wholesome spirituality is the goal of all Christian living.What sounds simple,
Ryrie warns is at risk from 'an unbalanced application of the doctrines related to
spirituality resulting in an unbalanced Christian life.' The answer to preventing
unbalance is to know how to study the Bible in such a way as to let it 'be the guide
and test for all our experiences in the spiritual life...and if any experience fails
to pass the test, it must be discarded.' In this foundational work for all believers,
Ryrie examines key issues of spirituality, including sanctification, temptation,
routine faithfulness and use of spiritual gifts.
